Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke released his new 12″ single “FeelingPulledApartByHorses”/”The Hollow Earth” today, and fans were given a free download of both tracks as they waited for the real thing to arrive.

Below, fans can stream both tracks, but especially check out the clip for “The Hollow Earth,” which was helmed by Raymond Salvatore Harmon, an experimental and concert film director, who mashes together the work of graffiti artist Banksy.

“The Hollow Earth” is really very simple sounding, with subtle arc, but Yorke’s voice sounds more penetrating than ever, nailing those high falsetto notes.

“FeelingPulledApartByHorses” clocks in at around seven minutes long, and is a “bass menace” as Yorke previously foretold. An excellent track for a spooky fall season.

Fans can purchase the vinyl release via the band’s W.A.S.T.E. shop to get the free downloads, or wait until Oct. 6 to purchase through digital retail.

Just Friday, the music video for Yorke’s cover of “All for the Best” for the Mark Mulcahy tribute album “Ciao My Shining Star” was released; today, there is an announcement due about the “Twilight Saga: New Moon” soundtrack, on which a new Yorke track is expected to appear.
